whelp figured out where i wanted my yota box.. here is a pic of it just chillin while i wait for the drill battery to charge back up. so far i have not gotten much of anything done... got way too much other crap on my mind to concentrate on much of anything. my idea for my steering link is lookin like it will be a winner the first time around.. just gotta piece it together. usin a mix of the stocker and the yota
